Today’s word is BRAVE…


I read the word Brave and wonder, Is that me?  No.  most certainly not.

I am not brave.

I repeat…I am NOT BRAVE.

I like order.

I like to know what is going on.

I like to know what is around the bend.

I do not like to be in the dark about things.

Basically, I like control.  Except I don’t get to be in control.  I am not in charge.  I don’t get to know what is around the bend.  

God has no plan B for my life.  Ask Holley.  She said it in her book You’re Already Amazing!

You know what, she is right.  I am OK.  I am amazing.  I CAN DO THIS with HIS help!

I can be brave enough to step out of my box and walk down the path.  With His help.

I can put myself out there and see what happens.

I can be brave.  Because He is enough and He said I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

And HE is in control.  He is in charge.

Have you read Holley’s book?  It will give you courage and strength to complete the race.  To walk the path He has for you.  Check out my review and giveaway here.


Holley’s book is incredible.  I am now re-reading it to absorb more of the goodness.

Have you read it?  What do you think?
